Bizarre set up here, we arrived to an unlocked entrance door and our key waiting on a hook with our name. Proceeded up to our room to find it unmade from the previous guests, despite our key being ready and it being over 2 hours after possible check in was permitted. We left to go and explore the area and... More

We stayed for one night here for a family get-together in the area. We were warmly greeted by the host and showed to our room which was very cosy. Very comfortable bed with more pillows than you can shake a stick at, and plenty of light in the room in the morning. Breakfast which was included was very good, cooked... More

Stayed here on business in July/August during the World Cup. Great fun! Thanks to Gwen, Katie & Paul for creating a friendly family run Inn. Very accommodating with early breakfast (7 am start at work) so thanks Gwen. Locals & Staff very welcoming. Good tasty food and well-kept local beers (thanks Katie). Food good value unlike most of the South... More

Just moved to the area and have visited this public house several times and never once been disappointed. Fantastic food, specials board changes frequently and great local beer! All served by a welcoming land lady. Well worth a visit if you are in the area...

We booked into the Ship inn totally unaware of what to expect and what we found was the friendliest host's ( Katie and Gwen ) one could imagine. Nothing was a trouble to them in order to make us feel at home. If you want 5 star luxury stay away however if you want a warm friendly travellers experience please... More

The very best food and service in this area the portions are huge the quality is first class I really like a pint with my meal on Saterday night but only manage one because of the meal size. We went because we were local but would travel with friends to call again from our home town.

We enjoyed two lovely evenings here and cannot fault the food. a small menu but something for everyone, the portions are huge & it arrives piping hot. Absolutely delicious. You are made to feel extremely welcome & we will definitely be... More

My girlfriend and I decided to cancel our original booking to a different B&B in Ulverston after seeing the website for this B&B in Bardsea. The website displayed photos of gorgeous looking rooms and promised that all rooms within the inn had been fully refurbished. We were given room 2 which, at a guess, hasn’t seen refurbishment since at least... More

I have reviewed The Ship Inn previously but only ate and drank there on our last visit (June 2012). My husband and I decided to book in at short notice for a 3 night break from 5/4/13-7/4/13. We received a very warm welcome, Katy remembered us by name and bought us our first drink which was a very nice gesture.We... More
